Cub FH Disc...fit in a truck bed?

Postby Dale Finch » Fri Dec 25, 2020 10:39 am

I was planning on going out to the farm to measure the Cub F-38 disc I have, and see if it can be "broken down" (not literally!) so that it is small enough to fit in a regular pickup truck bed. But the weather has been nasty and now it's freezing cold!!

Anyone know if it will fit whole, and if not, if something can EASILY be separated to make it fit?

It's going to a new home in Louisiana, and it would be easier if the trailer can be left home! Thanks!

It will fit just fine. Make sure you strap it down well. Do you have something to lift it into and out of the truck with?

Dale,

Should be a piece of cake. I attended an auction and brought home three FH implements in the pickup bed - disk, plow, and platform carrier. Oh, all for less than $400.

Don types faster than I do and his suggestions are excellent.

Check the pins (hair, cotter, bunch of different names) holding the different parts together. Should be able to remove the pins, breaking the disc down into three easily manageable pieces.

If you have ramps or a loading dock/area, you should be able to roll the entire disc into the pickup.
I have an excuse. CRS.

I agree, size isn't a problem but handling it will be unless you have something to lift it in and out. It weighs about 325 pounds. Imagine trying to load/unload a pair of rear wheel weights bolted together. Now imagine it 5 to 6 feet long with sharp edges, pinch points and pointy pieces all over it. That is what you have!

I think you can knock it down into three pieces by pulling out the two pivot bolts and a few quick attach pins. The two gangs will still be fairly heavy.

Thanks. Since my neighbor moved and I no longer have access to his Kabota with a loader, I'm hoping to get another neighbor, a tad further down the road, help with his big tractor!

Don’t forget to let whoever is getting it, to have lifting equipment on the other end.

The UNLOAD is usually where it gets interesting!! lol! ---- IF you haul it whole, make sure the guy on the other end has a big enough loader to handle it! lol! Did something like that and got to the place to unload and they came out with a little garden tractor!! ---- They needed a BIG loader to reach up on the semi, so ya make sure before the fact----saves lots of anger! LOL!!

I would suggest to whoever hauls it to put a piece of plywood in the bed before strapping it down. Mine makes some pretty aggressive gouges on concrete when I move it around.

Good suggestion...I hate letting things chafe my trailer deck! I have plywood for implements and carpet sections for straps, whenever I haul stuff. In my head I can hear other folks saying, "SHEESH, just strap that sucker down!!" :lol:

Glad you got it...I always do what was mentioned "plywood" and then I rotate it sideways and strap it down that way. It might be heavy but it will roll into place on the truck bed. It won't move that way.

I think I get it. It's going into their pickup, not yours?

That's right...he asked me if I thought it would fit, or if not, could it be taken apart. I'm sure he would rather leave it whole, IF we can get a loader at bother ends. He was hoping not to have to drag a trailer. Probably will take place in the next week or so.
